    35! Crikey. Hopefully I'll be working in wildlife conservation or as an ecological consultant, have a nice little house in the country and be surrounded by cats.

    It'll back EU-funded projects ( these are mostly short-term )
    It doesn't promise anything about any new science projects .
    We are now talking about a short period until PM trigers article 50 (which won't happen in 2016 as she said) , there are no long term commitments.
    The british government was not a huge supporter of british science all these years , EU was .
    All these top scientists and experts were against Brexit regarding science (stephen hawking, richard dawkins are two names I can recall)
    Many brexiters claimed that scientists should not only care about themselves (yeah as if science funding is only beneficial to scientists) and vote for brexit if they really care about the nation as a whole.
    If only british science becomes more international ( multinational science projects tend to be more successful http://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...ry-conditions/ ) and with greater funding , but then UK could achieve this inside the EU as well.

    14 years away, but that'll soon be upon us. How old will you be? What do you hope to be doing? And what do you think the world will be like then?!
    Well considering the more mature student and depending on their lifestyles, I would say many things, the most important to keep busy and look after ones health.. lots of avenues for them to peruse with their newfound educational awareness of what ever course material they have studied!

    I'll be 32 I think it'll go either of those two ways

    1) Alone, childless and with a lot of puppies.
    2) Married with lots of dogs with a big house near the forest ^.^

    I'll be a dirty thirty three and eating watermelon on a free range dog shelter with my spouse, listening to the soft sound of birdsong and the gradual collapse of capitalism. Our legion of adopted children sing and play with the hose, the eldest while working the field, and we have forgotten all concept of money. Chickens graze at our feet. We raise our coconuts, and toast to blue skies in Beijing.

    lmao jk probably losing hair over whatever project i'm doing at the time and sitting on my laptop late at night with a glass of wine and crusty eyes. Maybe counting on my fingers and toes how many thousands of pounds in student debt i've yet to pay off, which is more than expected once the government retroactively increased tuition fees to American scale. Childless, though, so not all bad

    Or maybe I'm a sister-wife in Utah, enrolled into the latest cult due to the onset of the apocalypse. Reeking of desperation and vaporub, every full moon I escape aboveground, braving wolves and radiation sickness, to lay flowers at the grave of my hopes and dreams.

    I'll be 41*

    ****.


    I'd hope to be settled, happily married with a family (3 kids, cat and maybe a dog). A nice house and a good life. in reality I have no idea if that will happen. I'll probably be just as clueless about what I want as I am now!*

    I think the world won't be too much different. There will have definitely been a couple of wars. I think we will be a lot more connected through technology and everything will be done via drones.*

    I was actually in a state of shock when you said its only 14 years away

    Hopefully I'd be doing a job I enjoy which pays well.

    I guess technology would've advanced a lot and we would be more dependant on it. Perhaps there would be some conflicts, maybe North and South korea going at it again. Who knows:dontknow:
